I had a great time at CES, it was good to see Windows Media Center looking so well on Windows 7. I have an interesting selection of interviews taken from CES. There is Gordon van Zuiden from Cybermanor, Lenovo talking consumers products, Todd Headrick from the Windows Home Server team, Mike Nash VP for Windows Product Management at Microsoft, Aaron Coldiron from Microsoft and Ben Reed from the Media Center team,
